Soon the radical party was torn by the War of the Two Edouards, and Daladier replaced Herriot. His desire, it seemed, was to reconcile France first with Italy then with Germany. To Rome he sent as ambassador Henry de Jouvenel, an adroit and brilliant politician who knew how to get along with Mussolini. Over the head of Paul Boncour, who was Minister of Foreign Affairs, Daladier and Jouvenel prepared for signature a Four Power Pact: France - Italy - England - Germany.
